? >> doing all right. your lead story talking about president obama's et putti house democrats in a tough spot. how is that helping? >> health care's become a problem in general for democrats right now if you think about it in two different areas. one, the budget that the president put forward does go after entitlement spending in a specific way which you talk about a lot on this show. for house democrats, they feel like running off the election that complicates their lives because they like to attack republicans for trying to reduce spending on entitlement programs. that's one box. there's a new poll out this morning by the kaiser foundation that shows that support for the obama health care law has dropped eight points. it's now at about 34%. and you saw in the debate last night where she was distancing herself from the obama health care law. i think there's a lot of democrats worried that the implementation has been very difficult, unpopular, particularly for small business owners and it could be very problematic for them in off-year elections, much like it was in 2010. >> i read a "wal
about that obama has been hosting to get reasonable republicans and democratic senators talking and to let them do the work, negotiate it and keep as far away from it as he himself, obama, can, so if they strike a deal it doesn't have obama's fingerprints over it and republicans have permission to side with the republicans who negotiated with it, which i guess we're talking about the green lantern theory and power of presidency. the less the president does, the more he has a chance of enacting something. >> i think that's right. to the republican base obama is so toxic so the fact of him supporting anything would rile him up. at the same time i'm skeptical of this idea that republican and democratic congress need to get together. the tea party caucus is so ideological. and they know how washington used to work and they know there were back room deals and camaraderie. they're not interested in that. they're interested in following their own ideals and not allowing government to work. that's where the problem rests. >> if you look at the phrase it implies have you no power. why wo

one, this idea of inefficiency. we were talking about that before. under obama. that's a theme we heard time and time. this black president is inefficient government. secondly, the theme that we're starting here time and time again is who is deserving and who is not deserving. the vilification of poor people as lady and undeserving. the welfare queen and very specific things come to mind. that's the story that is just playing into those themes. then you read crazy steve king from iowa saying this is a buyout for black people. they're trying to buy off minorities. that's disturbing. >> there's more immediate historical context that the piece missed, which is in 1983 reagan uses brutal cuts. she is literally thrown into the trash can, which creates an evidence gap. people who are trying to put in writing their claim to discrimination. you are looking at a series of cases where it is not clear. it's not always documented. now did that create some loose standards that aren't transparent and accountable? it looks like that might have been the case. but we need to find out the scale of
as he has through the presidency between issues and crises not of his choice, obama seemed like a spectator as if he resigned himself to a reactive presidency. we have always talked about the thunder heads in congress. >> even when you were there. >> the exception. >> can i correct you? especially when i was there. there were more thunder heads per square inch. >> i covered congress before you, joe, it was even worse then. >> we are at a strange point where the president is not even six months into his second term and he already looks like a lame duck to many people who are top analyst. >> this is a familiar pattern sometimes in second terms but if you look back at six months and where barack obama thought he might be today, i hate to use this analogy but he is like my washington nationals. expectations are pretty high and barely keeping his head above water. i agree with sam's examples but the sequestration itself -- >> isn't it fascinating, al? i remember a lot of us talking to the president before and talking to president's people, they really believed that the re-election wo
'm not sure how much president obama can intervene in the battles inside the republican party. what he can do is use executive powers, bully pulpit and veto pen -- >> let's talk about the constitution we all grew up. we're about the same age. i was telling this to our producers today, younger than me, a lot of them. the constitution doesn't guarantee the united states senate represents the american people. it represents the states. if you look at a map of the united states, most of the map physically is republican and conservative. it's rural. it's vast spaces in the south. and especially in the rocky mountain west. >> yep. >> all that space is represented in many cases by republican senators. >> right. >> who are pro gun. >> right. >> when you go to have a vote, 90% of the country wants background checks expanded. the senate goes the other direction. you go, whoa, it could be because the senate is representing land. you're laughing. the people out there in big cities go, what happened to my vote? my vote doesn't count as much as the guy living in utah. senators of new york and california rep

? >> i'm still friends with you, joe. what are you talking about? >> very nice. >> what i think on obama care is if you think that's anything an impact, a, i think you have to explain why, for example, on the day they announce that mandate is legal in a surprise the stock market barely hosas any hiccup. that will stop dropping the unemployment rate. you will replace 40-hour a week people with two 20-hour-a-week people. if you see average hours going way down with the unemployment rate falling you would say, okay. >> you really don't think businesses can control whether they -- like restaurants -- you don't think this will affect them? zandi would never go -- >> that's the right thing to add is on the margin. the number of companies right around the 50 threshold or the number of employees going to be right around. >> he was up for a big government job and still came out and said that. >> austin is right. proof positive. >> let me ask. you ask him when you want an expert, right? >> always ask kevin. >> i'm going to make you head of the bls if i can ever get in there. and i will say bls is
,000 in the plaming game when they want to talk about how successfully they are cutting government, then they say we are for the sequester, we are not going to give in to obama but when any particular thing comes up, they say, well, he's really the author of the sequester, even though ryan and almost all of the other voted for it. it's a game and they keep have to being getting called on it. but they thought with the steep cuts, the republicans would never let the sequester go into effect and that was a mistake. and i think also the administration left the impression that this was going to hit hard at the beginning. no, it wasn't, but it's really debilitating and i think they need to recalibrate their strategy, just like my boston celtics and your brooklyn nets did. but i think they can do it. >> you know, when you hear ryan blame the president for budget cuts now, but that's not what he said back in 2011. listen to this. >> what conservatives like me have been fighting for for years are statutory caps on spending, legal caps in law that says government agencies cannot spend over a set amount of mon

to start with you. first let's talk about immigration hurdles. here is what president obama had to say about immigration reform while speaking in costa rica a short time ago. >> comprehensive immigration reform that i'm hopeful we can pass this year after 30 years can make an enormous difference in improving what is already a system that's better than it was. >> now, senate leaders here in the u.s. are aiming to win up to 70 votes for their comprehensive immigration bill. patricia, does that look like a real possibility here? >> well, you know, as with everything in washington, the devil is in the details, and one detail that cropped up this week was an amendment that's probably going to be introduced by senate democrats to extend same-sex couples' immigration benefits. it something like that is attached to the bill, marco rubio, who is leading the republican effort said, no, this is not even going to pass, it's not going to get his vote and it will not get a large majority. it really depends what that bill looks like coming out of the senate. based on the numbers in the senate, then w
employees. >> jamie: talking there about september 11th, 2000 12, the night of the benghazi attack. retaliation she says for those who want to give information that ran counter to the obama administration's accounting of the events. president obama said this week that he was, quote, not familiar with the idea that anyone was being prevented from telling their story. here's the state department on the benghazi investigation yesterday. >> the whole state department family is committed to bringing those who perpetrated this attack to justice and doing everything we need to do to keep our people safe. that's where our attention is and we hope that congress and the media, too, can keep the focus on that. but republican congressman darrell issa who chairs the house committee hogd this hearing also says additional witnesses are hesitating to come forward because they believe they may be punished by their employers. kelly and jamie? >> kelly: molly thank you for the update. >> jamie: molly, thank you so much. meantime the fbi has posted several images of people who are wanted in connection
who have been killed, which is fairly small, is an issue for the administration. we're talking about weapons of mass destruction. this wasn't mass destruction. so, i think that's a game assad is playing that makes it more difficult for president obama. >> what would he would be hoping, congresswoman, he tries a few chemical weapons, america and the rest of the world doesn't respond, and that demoralizes the opposition. how far would you go to support more military action? >> no country in the region wants boots on the ground. we had king abdullah come to the united states, what he was asking for was help with a political situation, russia is in a position to help pressure assad, and i think that he has to go. i don't think there's any question about that. but, i think that all of these options have to be looked at, because the day after, the day after assad, is the day that these chemical weapons could be at risk, that if we don't address the growing sectarian that is there, and help the people who are more moderate, we could be in bigger, even bigger trouble the day after. >> i want
't think the judge is saying it's a signature is can't advancement for women. is he just ruling obama administration says 15-year-olds. what about parental rights? i mean, i keep coming back to in this country don't have any rights now. >> bill, come on. let's talk about what plan b is, okay? what happened to plan a? plan a was johnny and susan will were not going to have sex and unprotected sex. plan b they had sex and didn't have unprotected sex. that horse is out of the barn. they are not now magically going to talk to you. >> bill: just because children act irresponsibly doesn't mean their parents have no right to know about that. >> i'm not saying that. but they are not going to come and talk to you. they will sit in their room and pray they don't gets pregnant. >> bill: taking away my parental authority. >> no i'm not. >> bill: giving the child an avenue where the child can take action that influences the child big time without the child knowing about it. >> cough medicine. >> you can't buy without a drug abuse. dhs. highly abused by eighth graders, okay? 13, 14-year-olds there.
you up on what we were talking about before when we mentioned mark zandi. president obama's expected to nominate venture capitalist and former wireless cable lobbyist tom wheeler to head the federal communications commission. the announcement is expected today. wheeler served as an informal adviser to president obama for the last couple years and went into the business after the helm of the cable association and wireless group ctia. meantime, i just got ahead of myself on the mark zandi stuff. president obama is expected to nominate melvin watt to lead the fhfa, the regulator that oversees lending giants fannie mae and freddie mac. did i -- what did i say? he is a democrat from north carolina who served in the house for 20 years. he will replace edward dimarco, who was appointed by george w. bush. this is where you're supposed to say, honey, come watch "squawk" immediately, this is big. >> that's right. honey, get in here! dimarco's leaving! they're putting watt in, right? the fh? fh -- >> fhfa. >> all right in other political news it was a primary in massachusetts yesterday, apparen
forging ahead. >>steve: while the pressure heats up on president obama to make a decision, gas prices remain high at $3.50 a gallon. let's talk to stuart varney. are they connected, the keystone and the high price at the pump? >> i think they're going to be connected. at the moment you've got an average price nationwide, $3.50 a gallon. this is gretchen's story. she coined the expression the new normal for gas. the normal keeps going up. we've got $3.50 now. i think we're headed towards $4 a gallon in the summer. as prices start to rise towards that magic level $4 a gallon -- in comes the debate over the pipeline. the president has to make a decision fairly soon: build it? yes or no. as he's making that decision, gas prices rise. i don't think the two are connected. if you build the pipeline, i don't think you get prices down tomorrow morning. but in the public's mind they are going to be linked. >>steve: do everything you can? >> yes. because as you get closer to $4 a gallon. it's a big deal in america, $4 gas. that precise moment, then you have the president who is discussing the pi
